CHAPTER I FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
1.
FEATURES
This printer has the following features:
High Resolution and Fast Printing Speed
<HL-820>
True 600 dots per inch (dpi) with microfine toner and 8 pages per minute (ppm) printing
speed (A4 or Letter paper).
<HL-1040/1020>
True 600 dots per inch (dpi) with microfine toner and 10 pages per minute (ppm) printing
speed (A4 or Letter paper).
<HL-1050>
True 600 dots per inch (dpi) and 1200 x 600 dpi for graphics with microfine toner and 10
pages per minute (ppm) printing speed (A4 or Letter paper).
Enhanced Printing Performance and User-Friendly Operation for Windows
The dedicated printer driver and TrueTypeTM-compatible fonts for Microsoft® Windows 3.1
and Windows 95 are available on the floppy disk and CD-ROM supplied with your printer.
You can easily install them into your Windows system using our installer program. The
driver supports our unique compression mode to enhance printing speed in Windows
applications and allows you to set various printer settings including toner saving mode,
custom paper size, sleep mode, gray scale adjustment, resolution, and so forth. You can
easily setup these print options in the graphic dialog boxes through the Printer Setup
menu within the Windows Control Panel.
Printer Status Monitor with Bi-directional Parallel Interface
The printer driver can monitor your printer’s status using bi-directional parallel
communications.
The printer status monitor program can show the current status of your printer. When
printing, an animated dialog box appears on your computer screen to show the current
printing process. If an error occurs, a dialog box will appear to let you know what to
correct. For example: when your printer is out of paper, the dialog box will display “No
Paper” and instructions for the corrective action to take.
Versatile Paper Handling
The printer has a multi-purpose sheet feeder and a straight paper path mechanism.
Using this mechanism, you can load A4, letter, legal, B5, A5, A6, and executive sizes of
paper, and various types of media including envelopes, organizer paper, or your custom
paper size. The multi-purpose sheet feeder also allows manual paper loading, so you
can also use labels and transparencies.
Environment-Friendly
Economy Printing Mode
This feature will cut your printing cost by saving toner. It is useful to obtain draft copies
for proof-reading. You can select from two economy modes, 25% toner saving and 50%
toner saving, through the Windows printer driver supplied with your printer.
Sleep Mode (Power Save Mode)
Sleep mode automatically reduces power consumption when the printer is not in use.
The printer consumes less than 13W when in sleep mode.
I-1
Low Running Cost
The toner cartridge is separate from the drum unit. You need to replace only the toner
cartridge after around 2,400 pages, which is cost effective and ecologically friendly.
The actual number of pages printed with each toner cartridge may vary depending on
your average type of print job.
Enhanced Memory Management
The printer provides its own data compression technology in its printer hardware and the
supplied printer driver software, which can automatically compress graphic data and font
data efficiently into the printer's memory. You can avoid memory errors and print most
full page 600dpi graphic and text data, including large fonts, with the standard printer
memory.
Remote Printer Console Program for DOS (for HL-1040/1050 only)
The utility program, Remote Printer Console (RPC), is available on the floppy disk and
CD-ROM supplied with your printer. When you operate your computer in the DOS (Disk
Operating System) environment, this program allows you to easily change the default
settings of the printer such as fonts, page setup, emulations and so on.
This program also provides a status monitor program, which is a Terminate-and-Stay
Resident (TSR) program. It can monitor the printer status while running in the
background and report the current status or errors on your computer screen.
Popular Printer Emulation Support (for HL-1040/1050 only)
These printers support the following printer emulation modes;
The HL-1040 supports HP LaserJet IIP, Epson FX-850, and IBM Proprinter XL
The HL-1050 supports HP LaserJet 6P/6L, Epson FX-850 and IBM Proprinter XL.
When you use DOS application software or Windows™ version 3.0 or earlier, you can
use any of these emulations to operate the printer in the 300 dpi resolution mode. The
printers also support Auto-emulation switching between HP and Epson or HP and IBM. If
you want to set the printer emulation, you can do it using the Remote Printer Console
Program.
USB Interface (for HL-1050 only)
The Universal Serial Bus Interface is an interface which allows the printer to connect to
multiple peripheral devices.
High Resolution Control & Advanced Photoscale Technology (for HL-1050 only)
High resolution control (HRC) technology provides clear and crisp printouts. Use this
function to get smooth text print quality.
Advanced Photoscale Technology enables the printer to print graphics in 256 grayscales,
producing nearly photographic quality. Use this function when you want to print
photographic images.
®
Optional Apple Macintosh Interface (for HL-1040/1050 only)
An optional Apple Macintosh serial interface is available which allows your printer to be
connected to Apple Macintosh computers. With this option, you can use your printer with
both an IBM PC (or compatible) and an Apple Macintosh at the same time. This optional
interface board can be used as an RS-422A interface for Macintosh or an RS-232C serial
interface for an IBM PC or compatible.

Paper Transfer
2.2.1
Paper Supply
The pick-up roller picks up one sheet of paper from the paper feeder every time it is
rotated and feeds it to the paper feed roller.
Pick-up roller
p
Registration sensor lever
Hopper plate
Separation pad
Fig. 2-31
The paper is gripped between the pick-up roller and the separation pad and separated
into individual sheets.
The pick-up roller is directly connected to the sector gear, whose rotation is forcibly
stopped by the gear stopper. When the pick-up solenoid is activated, the clutch
mechanism is engaged by the solenoid action and the sector gear is driven; when it has
completed one full turn its rotation is stopped again by the gear stopper. The paper
drawn out by the pick-up roller pushes against the top of form sensor lever and the paper
top position/absence of paper is detected by sensing the motion of the lever.
2.2.2
Paper Registration
When paper picked up from the multi-purpose sheet feeder (MPF) pushes against the top
of form sensor actuator, the registration sensor lever is caused to turn, and the photo
sensor detects this motion. When this signal from the sensor is detected the paper feed
roller is stopped temporarily by the clutch. The paper is fed to the nip point between the
paper feed roller and the pinch roller in the multi-purpose sheet feeder, and the skew of
the paper is corrected by pushing the leading edge of the paper against the nip point.
When the paper feed roller starts to be rotated again when it is released by the clutch,
paper with the leading edge correctly aligned, is fed by the paper feed roller and is
transported to the transfer roller.

Paper Eject
The completion of paper eject is detected in the following manner:
(a)
When the leading edge of the paper pushes down the eject sensor actuator
located in the fixing unit, the photo sensor (photo interrupter) is opened and
detects the start of paper eject.
(b)
When the trailing edge of the paper has passed through the paper eject sensor
actuator, the photo sensor is closed and the completion of paper eject is
recognized.

Charging
The drum is charged to approx. +1150V by an ion charge which is generated by the
primary charger. The charge is generated by ionization of the corona wire, which has a
DC bias from the high-voltage power supply applied to it. The flow of the ion charge is
controlled by the grid to ensure it is distributed evenly on the drum surface. The drum
sleeve is regulated to approx. 280V by the voltage regulator.

The primary charge uses a corona wire, but since the drum is positively charged, only
less than 1/10 of the usual quantity of ozone is generated compared with the negatively
charged drum. The level of ozone expelled from the printer is therefore not harmful to the
human body. Applicable safety standards have been complied with.

Developing
Developing causes the toner to be attracted to the electrostatic image on the drum so as
to transform it into a visible image.
The developer consists of a non-magnetic toner. The development roller is made of
conductive rubber and the supply roller (which is also made of conductive sponge) rotate
against each other. The toner is charged and carried from the supply roller to the
development roller. The toner adheres to the development roller and is conveyed to the
drum at an even thickness controlled by the blade. The toner is nipped between the
development roller and the drum and developed onto the latent image on the drum. The
electrostatic field between the drum and the development roller, which is DC-biased from
the high-voltage power supply, creates the electrostatic potential to attract toner particles
from the development roller to the latent image area on the drum surface.

2.5.4 Transfer
(a)
Transfer process
After the drum has been charged and exposed, and has received a developed
image, the toner formed is transferred onto the paper by applying a negative
charge to the back of the paper. The negative charge applied to the paper causes
the positively charged toner to leave the drum, and adhere to the paper. As a
result, the image is visible on the paper.
(b)
Cleaning process of transfer roller
If the toner is not transferred onto the paper perfectly, it is possible that there may
be residual toner on the drum which will adhere to the transfer roller. The transfer
voltage changes to a positive voltage during non-printing rotation of the drum.
Therefore the transfer roller is cleaned by returning the positively charged toner
adhering to the transfer roller onto the photo-conductive drum.
II-32
2.5.5 Drum Cleaning Stage
In the image transfer stage, not all the toner on the photosensitive drum is transferred
onto the paper but some remains on the drum. In the drum cleaning stage, the drum
surface is cleaned by the cleaning roller, so that residual toner on the drum surface is
removed and collected on the cleaning roller itself. The residual toner on the cleaning
roller will be discharged to the drum during starting or non-printing time. The toner will be
collected by the developing roller and reused (for further developing).
2.5.6
Erasing Stage
Before the cleaning stage, the drum surface is exposed to the light emitted from the
erase lamp (LED lamp). This stage prepares the drum by decreasing its surface voltage
uniformly, ready to receive a uniform charge in the primary charging stage.

The image transferred to the paper by static electricity is fixed by heat and pressure when
passing through the heat roller and the pressure roller in the fixing unit. The thermistor
ASSY keeps the surface temperature of the heat roller constant by detecting the surface
temperature of the heat roller and turning on or off the halogen heater lamp.

CHAPTER III DISASSEMBLY AND REASSEMBLY
1.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
To avoid creating secondary problems by mishandling, be careful to follow the following
precautions during maintenance work.
(1)
Always turn off the power switch and unplug the power cord from the power outlet
before accessing any parts inside the printer.
(2)
Be careful not to lose screws, washers, or other parts removed.
(3)
Be sure to apply grease to the gears and applicable positions specified in this
chapter.
(4)
When using soldering irons or other heat-generating tools, take care not to
accidentally damage parts such as wires, PCBs, and covers.
(5)
Before handling any PCBs, touch a metal portion of the equipment to discharge
any static electricity charge on your body, or the electronic parts or components
may be damaged.
(6)
When transporting PCBs, be sure to wrap them in the correct protective packaging.
(7)
Be sure to replace self-tapping screws correctly, if removed. Unless otherwise
specified, tighten screws to the following torque values.
TAPTITE, BIND or CUP B
M3 : 7kgf • cm
M4 : 10kgf • cm
TAPTITE, CUP S
M3 : 8kgf • cm
SCREW
M3 : 7kgf • cm
M4 : 8kgf • cm
(8)
When connecting or disconnecting cable connectors, hold the connector body, not
the cables. If the connector has a lock, release the connector lock first to release
it.
(9)
After a repair, check not only the repaired portion but also all connectors. Also
check that other related portions are functioning properly before operational
checks.

CHAPTER IV MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
1.
INTRODUCTION
1.1
Initial Check
(1)
Operating environment
Check if :
• The source voltage stays within ±10% from the rated voltage shown on the rating
plate.
• The printer is installed on a solid, level surface.
• The room temperature is maintained between 10°C and 32.5°C. The relative
humidity is maintained between 20% and 80%.
• The printer is not located in a dusty place.
• The printer is not exposed to ammonia fumes or other harmful gases.
• The printer is not located in a hot or humid area (such as near water or a
humidifier).
• The printer is not exposed to direct sunlight.
• The room is well-ventilated.
• The printer is not placed where the ventilation hole of the printer is blocked.
(2)
Print paper
Check if :
• A recommended type of print paper is being used. [If the paper is too thick or too
thin, or tends to curl, paper jams or paper feed problems may occur, or printed
images may be blurred.]
• The print paper is damped. [If so, use fresh paper, and check whether the print
quality improves or not.]
• The print paper is short-grained paper or acid paper. [If so, print quality problems
may occur. For further information, refer to paper specifications in Chapter II.]
(3)
Consumables
Check if :
• The Toner lamp is not lit on the control panel when a toner cartridge is installed in
the printer. [If the lamp is lit, replace the cartridge with a new one. If blank spots
occur on printouts, take out the drum unit and slowly rock it to redistribute the
toner evenly.]
(4)
Others
Condensation:
When the printer is moved from a cold room into a warm room in cold weather,
condensation may occur inside the printer, causing various problems as listed
below:
• Condensation on the optical surfaces such as the scanning mirror, lenses, the
reflection mirror and the protection glass may cause the print image to be light.
• If the photosensitive drum is cold, the electrical resistance of the photosensitive
layer is increased, making it impossible to obtain the correct contrast when
printing.
IV-1
• Condensation on the corona unit may cause corona charge leakage.
• Condensation on the hopper gate and separation pad may cause paper feed
troubles.
If condensation has occurred, wipe the effected units or parts with a dry cloth.
If the drum unit is unpacked soon after it is moved from a cold room to a warm room,
condensation may occur inside the unit, which may cause incorrect images. Instruct the
user to allow the unit to come to room temperature before unpacking it. This will take one
or two hours.
1.2
Basic Procedure
If a malfunction or incorrect print appears, make an initial check following the basic
procedure below:
(1)
Check the error lamps following the inspection proc edure described later in
this section. If no error lamps are lit, see Section 4 for troubleshooting information.
(2)
If any defective image output is found, follow the image defect fault descriptions in
this section.

HOW TO KNOW DRUM UNIT LIFE & PAGE COUNTER
If you want to know the drum unit life or the number of printed pages, you should
print out the test print page (for HL-820/1020) or the print configuration page(s) (HL1040/1050).
Print Test Print or Print Configuration
1) Turn on the power switch of the printer while pressing the control panel
switch.
2) Release the panel switch when the Drum lamp comes on.
3) Press the panel switch and release it when the Alarm lamp comes on.
4) Print the page(s) of Test Print or Print Configuration.
Note:
The design of Test Print and Print Configuration vary depending on the printer
model. Refer to the figures below;
The ** marks in the figures show the page counter. They are not printed in
some countries.

3.1
INSTALLATION
Conditions Required for Installation
Installation conditions for the lower tray unit are the same as for the printer. Any laser beam
printer is likely to be influenced by the environment of the set-up location. If the printer is setup in an inappropriate location, the printer may not perform as expected. Therefore, the
following factors should be taken into consideration before deciding where to set-up the
printer.
3.1.1 Environmental conditions
The printer should not be set up in the locations referred to in the following items 1) through
4) which specify inappropriate locations for set-up.
1) Where it is likely to receive direct sunlight or similar light. (For example, next to a window)
2) Where it is likely to suffer a big difference in temperature and humidity between the
maximum and minimum levels. (Normal operation environment is within 10°C ∼ 32.5°C,
20 ∼ 80%RH and without any condensation.)
3) Where it is likely to be in a draft of cold air from an air-conditioner or warm air from a
heater, or to receive direct radiant heat.
4) Where it is likely to be excessively dusty or be subject to corrosive gases such as
ammonia.
5) Users should select a location with good ventilation and set the printer on a flat surface.
6) Users should check that the maximum angle of the set-up location is horizontal to within
±1°.
3.1.2 Basic layout of printer set-up location

communications device driver has previously been installed, it will be deactivated by this
new driver. If you want to use the driver that was previously installed, you should re-install
your previous driver. However, re-installing the previous driver will make the HL800/1000 series driver inactive.
The installer makes the installed printer driver the Windows default.
The installer automatically sets the printer port to the parallel interface, LPT1.
During this installation, changes have been made to the SYSTEM.INI file. It is necessary
to restart Windows so that the changes become effective and the installed bi-directional
parallel communications device driver can take effect.

What Does Remote Printer Console Do?
The Remote Printer Console (RPC) is a utility program which runs in the DOS environment
and comprises the following two programs:
❏ Remote Printer Console Main Program
This program allows you to change various printer settings such as emulation, print
quality, fonts, page setup and so on from your computer screen. Since most DOS
applications have a printer settings menu which overrides the settings made by the RPC,
you may not need to use this utility program. This utility program is useful for application
software which does not control the printer’s settings and features.
❏ Printer Status Monitor Program
This utility program can monitor your printer’s status using bi-directional parallel
communications. If your printer has no paper, this utility program displays “Paper Empty”
error status and instructions for corrective action on your computer screen. This utility
program stays resident in your computer memory (Terminate-and-Stay Resident program)
and runs in the background.
Installing the Remote Printer Console
Before you install the program, make sure that you have the following hardware and software:
DOS
Monitor
Option
Version 3.3 or later
EGA/VGA or compatible
Mouse; the mouse driver must be installed.
(You can also operate the program with the keyboard.)
Follow these steps to install the remote printer console program:
1. Make sure your printer is connected to your computer and is ready (On-line).
2. Start your computer. If you are in Windows, exit and return to the DOS prompt. You must
be in the DOS prompt to proceed with installation.
3. Insert the supplied disk into your floppy disk drive (A: or B:).
4. Select drive A or B to be used by typing A: or B: after
the DOS prompt and pressing the Enter key.
5. Type RPCSETUP and press the Enter key.
6. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Using the Printer Status Monitor Program
Type C:\RPCX>STMX and press the Enter key to make the Printer Status Monitor Program
stay resident in your computer memory. If there are any changes to the printer status, it
displays a message on your computer screen.
If the printer status monitor program stays resident in your computer, you can monitor the
printer status on your computer screen immediately using the hot-key sequence (Ctrl+Alt+R).
To remove the Printer Status Monitor program from your computer memory, type
C:\RPCX>STMX/R and press the Enter key.
❏ The RPC works in the environment where your printer is directly connected to your
computer. If you are using any printer buffer switches which do not support bi-directional
communication between the printer and computer, the program works only in the PC to
printer direction and cannot receive printer status information.
❏ The program does not work with printers on a network.
❏ If the RPC conflicts with some application software, exit your application software and
then run the RPC.
❏ The RPC may work in the DOS-compatible box screen mode of Windows, however, it is
recommended that you completely exit from Windows to the DOS prompt before using the
RPC.
❏ The Printer Status Monitor and some other Terminate-and-Stay programs cannot coexist in
the computer’s memory. If they do not work properly together, use them one at a time.
You can suspend the Printer Status monitor with any of the following methods or
commands.
Type C:\RPCX>STMX/R and press the Enter key.
Hold the space bar down while executing the AUTOEXEC.BAT file at DOS startup to
prevent the status monitor being loaded as a TSR program.

- 22 -
Other Control Features
Sleep Mode
When the printer does not receive data for a certain period of time (time-out), it enters
sleep mode. Sleep mode acts as though the printer was turned off. The default time-out
is 5 minutes. While the printer is in sleep mode, all the lamps are off and it is as if it
was turned off, but the printer can still receive data from the computer. Receiving a print
file or document automatically wakes up the printer to start printing. Pressing the switch
also wakes up the printer.
✒ Note
When the printer goes into sleep mode, the fan will not stop until the printer engine
has cooled down.
Sleep mode allows the print engine to cool, so the temperature of your room and how
long the printer has been in sleep mode affects the warm-up time. This warm-up time
can take up to 30 seconds. The Ready lamp blinks to indicate that the printer is
warming up.
You can change the time out for the sleep mode with the supplied printer driver (all
models) or Remote Printer Console program (HL-1040/1050 only). Refer to the Help
section in the printer driver or RPC program for more information about the sleep
mode setting.

REPLACING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
The printer can print approximately 2,400 pages (5% coverage: A4/Letter) with one toner
cartridge. When the toner cartridge is running low, the Alarm and Data (Toner) lamps blink
once every 5 seconds to indicate toner low. Initially, some models are supplied with a
starter toner cartridge which must be replaced after 1,000 pages.
✒ Note
Actual page count will vary depending on your average document type. (i.e.:
standard letter, detailed graphics, etc.)
It is recommended that you always keep a new toner cartridge ready for use for when
you get the toner low warning.
Discard the used toner cartridge according to local regulations. If you are not sure of
them, consult your local dealer. Be sure to seal up the toner cartridge tightly so that
toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge. Do not discard used toner cartridges
together with domestic rubbish.
It is recommended that you clean the printer when you replace the toner cartridge.

Caution
When removing the drum unit, handle it carefully as it may contain toner.
You should clean the printer when you replace the drum unit.
✒ Note
The drum unit is a consumable, and it is necessary to replace it periodically.
There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as temperature,
humidity, type of paper and toner that you use, the number of pages per print job, etc..
The drum life is estimated at approximately 20,000 pages at 20 pages per job and 8,000
pages at 1 page per job. The actual number of pages that your drum will print may be
significantly less than these estimates. Because we have no control over the many
factors that determine the actual drum life, we cannot guarantee a minimum number of
pages that will be printed by your drum.
For best performance, use only genuine Brother toner, and the product should only be
used in a clean, dust-free environment with adequate ventilation.
Follow these steps to replace the drum unit:
1
Open the top cover towards you. Remove
the drum unit by holding each side of the

IMPORTANT - For Your Safety
Declaration of Conformity (For Europe)
To ensure safe operation the three-pin electrical plug supplied must
be inserted only into a standard three-pin power point which is
properly grounded through normal household wiring.
We, Brother International Europe Ltd.,
Brother House 1 Tame Street, Guide Bridge,
Audenshaw, Manchester M34 5JE, UK.
declare that this product is in conformity with the following
normative documents.
Safety: EN 60950,
EN 60825
EMC: EN 55022 Class B,
EN 50082-1
following the provisions of the Low Voltage Directive
73/23/EEC and the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive
89/336/EEC (as amended by 91/263/EEC and 92/31/EEC).
Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-pin plug
type and correctly wired to provide proper grounding. Incorrectly
wired extension cords may cause personal injury and equipment
damage.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply
that the power is grounded and that the installation is completely
safe. For your safety, if in any doubt about the effective grounding
of the power, consult a qualified electrician.
Disconnect device
This printer must be installed near a power outlet, which is easily
accessible. In case of emergencies, you must disconnect the power
cord from the power outlet in order to shut off power completely.
IMPORTANT - Wiring Information (For U.K. only)
If the power cord supplied with this printer is not suitable for your
electrical outlet, remove the plug from the mains cord and fit an
appropriate three pin plug. If the replacement plug is intended to
take a fuse then fit the same fuse as the original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the power cord then it should be
destroyed because a plug with cut wires is dangerous if plugged into
a live socket outlet. Do not leave it where a child might find it.
In the event of replacing the plug fuse, fit a fuse approved by ASTA
to BS1362 with the same rating as the original fuse.
Always replace the fuse cover. Never use a plug with the cover
omitted.
WARNING - THIS PRINTER MUST BE PROPERLY EARTHED.
The wires in the mains cord are coloured in accordance with the
following code:
Green and yellow:
Ground
Blue:
Neutral
Brown:
Live
The colours of the wiring in the power lead of this printer may not
correspond with the markings which identify the terminals in your
plug. If you need to fit a different plug, proceed as follows.
Remove a length of the cord outer sheath, taking care not to damage
the coloured insulation of the wires inside.
Cut each of the three wires to the appropriate length. If the
construction of the plug permits, leave the green and yellow wire
longer than the others so that, in the event that the cord is pulled out
of the plug, the green and yellow wire will be the last to disconnect.
Remove a short section of the coloured insulation to expose the
wires.
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to
the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter “E” or by
the earth symbol or coloured green or green and yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter “N” or coloured black or blue.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter “L” or coloured red or
brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The
coloured wires should not hang out of the plug.
This product is designed for use in a
professional environment.

Optional Apple Macintosh Interface
An optional Apple Macintosh serial interface is available, which
allows your printer to be connected to Apple Macintosh computers.
With this option, you can use your printer with both an IBM PC, or
compatible, and an Apple Macintosh at the same time. This optional
interface board can be used as an RS-422A interface for Macintosh or
an RS-232C serial interface for an IBM PC or compatible.
❏ Enhanced Memory Management
The printer provides its own data compression technology in the
printer hardware and the supplied printer driver software, which can
automatically compress graphic data and font data efficiently into the
printer’s memory. You can avoid memory errors and print most full
page 600 dpi graphic and text data, including larger fonts, with the
printer’s standard memory.

❏ Environment-Friendly
Economy Printing Mode
This feature will cut your printing cost by saving toner. It is useful to
obtain draft copies for proof-reading. You can select from two
economy modes—25% toner saving and 50% toner saving—through
the Windows printer driver supplied with your printer.
Sleep Mode (Power Save Mode)
When the printer is not used for a certain amount of time, sleep mode
automatically reduces power consumption. The printer consumes less
than 13 W when in sleep mode.
Low Running Cost
Since the toner cartridge is separate from the drum unit, you need to
replace only the toner cartridge after approximately 2,400 pages,
which is cost effective and ecologically friendly. (Some models are
supplied with a starter toner cartridge which must be replaced
after 1,000 pages.)
The actual number of pages printed with each toner cartridge may
vary depending on your average type of print job.

Other Control Features
The printer has the following useful features:
Sleep Mode
When the printer does not receive data for a certain period of time (timeout), it enters sleep mode. Sleep mode acts as though the printer was
turned off. The default time-out is 5 minutes. While the printer is in sleep
mode, all the lamps are off and it is as if it was turned off, but the printer
can still receive data from the computer. Receiving a print file or
document automatically wakes up the printer to start printing. Pressing
the switch also wakes up the printer.
✒ Note
When the printer goes into sleep mode, the fan will not stop until the
printer engine has cooled down.
Sleep mode allows the print engine to cool, so the temperature of your
room and how long the printer has been in sleep mode affects the
warm-up time. This warm-up time can take up to 30 seconds. The
Ready lamp blinks to indicate that the printer is warming up.
You can change the time out for the sleep mode with the supplied
printer driver (all models) or Remote Printer Console program (HL1040/1050 only). Refer to the Help section in the printer driver or

CHAPTER 5
MAINTENANCE
REPLACING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
The printer can print approximately 2,400 pages (5% coverage:
A4/Letter) with one toner cartridge. When the toner cartridge is running
low, the Alarm and Data (Toner) lamps blink once every 5 seconds to
indicate toner low. Initially, some models are supplied with a starter
toner cartridge which must be replaced after 1,000 pages.
✒ Note
Actual page count will vary depending on your average document
type. (i.e.: standard letter, detailed graphics, etc.)
It is recommended that you always keep a new toner cartridge ready
for use for when you get the toner low warning.
Discard the used toner cartridge according to local regulations. If you
are not sure of them, consult your local dealer. Be sure to seal up the
toner cartridge tightly so that toner powder does not spill out of the
cartridge. Do not discard used toner cartridges together with domestic
rubbish.
It is recommended that you clean the printer when you replace the
toner cartridge. See “CLEANING THE PRINTER” in this chapter.

CHAPTER 5 MAINTENANCE
REPLACING THE DRUM UNIT
The printer uses a drum unit to create the print images on paper. If the
Drum lamp is on, it indicates the drum unit is nearly at the end of its life.
We recommend you prepare a new drum unit to replace the current one.
Even if the Drum lamp is on, you may be able to continue to print
without replacing the drum unit for a while. If there is a noticeable
deterioration in the output print quality even before the Drum lamp
lights, then the drum unit should be replaced.

Caution
When removing the drum unit, handle it carefully as it may contain
toner.
You should clean the printer when you replace the drum unit. See
“CLEANING THE PRINTER” in this chapter.
✒ Note
The drum unit is a consumable, and it is necessary to replace it
periodically.
There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as
temperature, humidity, type of paper and toner that you use, the number
of pages per print job, etc.. The drum life is estimated at approximately
20,000 pages at 20 pages per job and 8,000 pages at 1 page per job. The
actual number of pages that your drum will print may be significantly less
than these estimates. Because we have no control over the many factors
that determine the actual drum life, we cannot guarantee a minimum
number of pages that will be printed by your drum.
For best performance, use only genuine Brother toner, and the product
should only be used in a clean, dust-free environment with adequate
ventilation.

6-10
Recommendation
Check if the DOS application software interface
settings match that of your printer: for example, if
you are using a parallel printer cable, you would
most likely set your DOS software printer port to
LPT1.
Check if the printer has any printer alarms active.
Check if the appropriate printer is selected in your
application software.
The HL-820/1020 cannot print from DOS
applications.
If the serial interface is used, make sure that the
RS-232C serial interface is selected with the slide
switch. Make sure that the interface settings are
correctly set up with the proper DIP switches.
Make sure the serial parameters of baud rates,
parity and stop bits match between your
application software and the printer.
This is an indication that your application printer
emulation setting and the printer’s emulation do not
match. Check in your application software which
printer you have selected to make sure the printer is
set up correctly. Remember the printer emulates three
widely used printer selections: HL-1040 (HP LaserJet
IIP, Epson FX-850, and IBM Proprinter XL) / HL1050 (HP LaserJet 6L/6P, Epson FX-850 and IBM
Proprinter XL). Try setting the printer into HP
emulation and then select the HP LaserJet IIP (for
HL-1040) or HP LaserJet 6P/6L (for HL-1050)
printer in your application software.
Press the panel switch. The data has been sent to the
printer but the printer did not receive the Page Eject
command: print screens do not send this command.
This was a common problem with database software
and spreadsheet software when not correctly set up.
The data has been sent to the printer but the printer
did not receive the Page Eject command. Press the
panel switch to eject the page. Then check with your
software supplier on how to add a Page Eject (or
Form Feed) command to the end of your print job.
Use the remote printer console (RPC) program.

Setting Up the Printer for Apple Macintosh Computers When the
Optional RS-100M Serial Interface Is Installed into Your Printer
(For HL-1040/1050 Only)
Question
I cannot print from my
application software.
Recommendation
Make sure that the supplied Macintosh printer
driver is installed in the System Folder and it is
selected with Chooser.
Check the PORT selection within the Chooser: it
should match the port to which you physically
attached the printer cable.
The serial slide switch of the optional interface
board should be in the Apple (RS-422A) position.
Check the printer cable type: you cannot use a
LocalTalk or straight-through cable. Refer to
Chapter 4 for details on printer cable type.
Paper Handling
Question
The printer does not load
paper.
The printer does not load paper
from the manual feed slot.
How can I load envelopes?
What paper can I use?
How can I clear paper jams?
Recommendation
Check to see if the “PAPER EMPTY” message
appears on your computer screen or the Alarm
and Paper lamps are blinking on the printer
control panel. If so, the multi-purpose sheet feeder
may be out of paper or not properly installed. If it
is empty, load a new stack of paper into the
feeder.
If there is paper in the multi-purpose sheet feeder,
make sure it is straight. If the paper is curled, you
should straighten it before printing. Sometimes it
is helpful to remove the paper, turn the stack over
and put it back into the paper tray.
Reduce the amount of paper in the multi-purpose
sheet feeder, then try again.
Re-insert the paper firmly, one sheet at a time.
You can load envelopes from either the multi-purpose
sheet feeder or the manual feed slot. Your application
software must be set up correctly to print on the
envelope size you are using. This is usually done in
the page setup or document setup menu of your
software. Refer to your application manual.
You can use plain paper, envelopes, transparencies,
labels, and organizer paper. For information on
loading paper, see “Paper Handling” in Chapter 2.

The problem may disappear by itself. Try printing
multiple pages to clear this problem especially if the
printer has not been used for a long time.
If the surface of the drum has been scratched, replace
the drum unit with a new one.
If the problem does not disappear, it may be that the
drum has been marked or damaged due to excessive
exposure to light. In this case, replace the drum unit
with a new one.

Recommendation
Certain environmental conditions such as humidity,
high temperatures, etc. may cause this situation to
occur.
Make sure that the printer is placed on a flat,
horizontal surface.
Remove the drum unit with the toner cartridge
installed. Try shaking them from side to side.
You may clear the problem by wiping the scanner
windows with a soft cloth. (See “Cleaning the
Printer Interior and Drum Unit.”)
If the same problem occurs after cleaning and
Drum lamp is still on, replace the drum unit with
a new one.
Make sure that you use paper that meets the
specifications. Rough surface or thick media can
cause the problem.
Make sure that you select the appropriate media
type in the pritner driver.

IMPORTANT - For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation the three-pin electrical plug supplied must be inserted only into a
standard three-pin power point which is properly grounded through normal household wiring.
Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-pin plug type and correctly wired to
provide proper grounding. Incorrectly wired extension cords may cause personal injury and
equipment damage.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the power is grounded
and that the installation is completely safe. For your safety, if in any doubt about the effective
grounding of the power, consult a qualified electrician.
Disconnect device
This printer must be installed near a power outlet, which is easily accessible. In case of
emergencies, you must disconnect the power cord from the power outlet in order to shut off
power completely.

CHAPTER 7 APPENDIX
IMPORTANT - Wiring Information (For U.K. only)
If the power cord supplied with this printer is not suitable for your electrical outlet, remove
the plug from the mains cord and fit an appropriate three pin plug. If the replacement plug is
intended to take a fuse then fit the same fuse as the original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the power cord then it should be destroyed because a plug
with cut wires is dangerous if plugged into a live socket outlet. Do not leave it where a child
might find it.
In the event of replacing the plug fuse, fit a fuse approved by ASTA to BS1362 with the same
rating as the original fuse.
Always replace the fuse cover. Never use a plug with the cover omitted.
WARNING - THIS PRINTER MUST BE PROPERLY EARTHED.
The wires in the mains cord are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green and yellow:
Blue:
Brown:
Ground
Neutral
Live
The colours of the wiring in the power lead of this printer may not correspond with the
markings which identify the terminals in your plug. If you need to fit a different plug, proceed
as follows.
Remove a length of the cord outer sheath, taking care not to damage the coloured insulation
of the wires inside.
Cut each of the three wires to the appropriate length. If the construction of the plug permits,
leave the green and yellow wire longer than the others so that, in the event that the cord is
pulled out of the plug, the green and yellow wire will be the last to disconnect.
Remove a short section of the coloured insulation to expose the wires.
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug
which is marked with the letter “E” or by the earth symbol or coloured green or green and
yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter “N” or coloured black or blue.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter “L” or coloured red or brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The coloured wires should not
hang out of the plug.
